And here we go again, for the umpteenth time, here comes the obligatory denial from government about the path of the rock due to impact us in 2029. "Whew! Asteroid Won't Hit Earth in 2029, Scientists Now Say," is the headline at Space.com. The familiar spiel goes on, "The world can exhale a collective sigh of relief. A newfound asteroid tagged with the highest warning level ever issued will not strike Earth, scientists said Monday. The giant space rock, named 2004-MN4, was said on Dec. 23 to have an outside shot at hitting the planet on April 13, 2029. The odds climbed as high as 1-in-37, or 2.7 percent, on Monday, Dec. 27. Researchers had flagged the object as one to monitor very carefully. It was the first asteroid to be ranked 4 on the Torino Scale"

[NOTE: Notice how while astronomers were distracted by the Christmas Star tsunami, the ranking for MN4 had gone from 2 to 4 on the Torino scale. At this point the media machine kicked into spin alert and began conditioning us to regard this Rock as harmless.]

Space.com continues, "The asteroid is about a quarter mile (400 meters) wide, large enough to cause considerable local or regional damage were it to hit the planet…old observations provided the data necessary to rule out an impact. 'It is not the first time a potentially threatening asteroid has been theoretically defused by looking into the past…'We are lucky that these earlier sightings were made, since 2004-MN4 is usually too faint to be detected by near-Earth-object search telescopes,' said Clark Chapman of the Southwest Research Institute…Orbits change with time because of gravitational tugs by the Sun and planets, among other factors. 2004-MN4 circles the Sun, but unlike most asteroids that reside in a belt between Mars and Jupiter, the 323-day orbit of 2004-MN4 lies mostly within the orbit of Earth. Scientists cannot say that the asteroid will never hit Earth."

[NOTE: The key statement above is, "Orbits change with time because of gravitational tugs by the Sun and planets, among other factors…Scientists cannot say that the asteroid will never hit Earth" In other words, the repeated headlines that train us to disregard the coming Rock are blatant propaganda, intentional thought-control and manipulation of our opinions.]

"Scientists rule out 2029 asteroid impact," notes The St. Petersburg Times. "Additional observations have ruled out the chance that a recently discovered asteroid, believed to be about 1,300 feet long, could hit Earth in 2029, NASA scientists said. Last week, asteroid 2004-MN4 had been given a small chance of impacting Earth, based on observations in June and this month. The Spacewatch Observatory near Tucson, Ariz., found faint pictures of the asteroid in archival images dating to March 15. The pictures allowed scientists to refine the asteroid's projected trajectory. Scientists also ruled out an impact with the moon."

[NOTE: So here is where corporate media expected this issue to be put to bed. They'd done their job and trained the herd to not think about MN4. But the Deity intervenes, and "2005" (sic) brings unprecedented developments…"Electric Love" cannot be kept hidden…]

"NASA Announces Latest Asteroid Threat to Earth," is the headline at About.com. "Near-Earth Asteroid 2004-MN4 Reaches Highest Score To Date On Hazard Scale - It may sound like an Urban Legend, but it's not [a legend]…'unlucky numerical omens' [are] associated with this asteroid. A recently rediscovered 400-meter Near-Earth Asteroid (NEA) is predicted to pass near the Earth on 13 April 2029. The flyby distance is uncertain and an Earth impact cannot yet be ruled out. The odds of impact, initially around 1 in 300, were unusual enough to merit special monitoring by astronomers…As of December 24, 2004, 2004-MN4 is now being tracked very carefully by many astronomers around the world, and we continue to update our risk analysis for this object.

New impact monitoring results indicate that the impact probability for April 13, 2029 has risen to about 1.6%, which for an object of this size corresponds to a rating of 4 on the ten-point Torino Scale. Nevertheless, the odds against impact are still high…and odds are likely to change on a day-to-day basis…This object is the first to reach a level 2 (out of 10) on the Torino Scale…New telescopic observations very likely will lead to re-assignment...The brightness of 2004-MN4 suggests that its diameter is roughly 400 meters (1300 feet) and our current, but very uncertain, best estimate of the flyby distance in 2029 is about twice the distance of the moon, or about 780,000 km (480,000 miles)…

[NOTE: This article reveals a high level of behind-the-scenes in-fighting in our government's asteroid Control Room over what can be said and what can be kept hidden about MN4. There is a rebellion among some of the astronomers who know the truth.]
